La Mauny Vieux VSOP Rum is a blend or rums aged four to five years and produced in Martinque of the West Indies.
The La Mauny estate was founded in 1749 by Joseph Ferdinand Poulain as a sugar plantation. The estate has previously produced a number of products, but focused on rum beginning in the 1800s.
After drinking HC 3yo and Conde de Cuba 3yo this is my third off-white Cuban rum. I love some aged rums but also started to like young and crisp rums, especially on hot and/or sunny days.
This Mulata has a really nice scent that is very recognizable when you are familiar with the older Mulatas. Just a bit fresher and greener, somewhat more floral. For a rum this young it opens up pretty fast and strong. On the palate it is clearly the younger sibling of the 5 and 7yo Mulata, just a tad lighter, more grassy and a tad less smooth though still a pleasant, light sip. After the Havana Club 3yo I am surprised how much taste both Mulata and Conde de Cuba can get in their 3yo rums. Nothing complex going on but interesting enough for a refill.
When I compare all three I would say that Mulata 3yo is three steps ahead of HC 3yo and one step behind Conde de Cuba 3yo. When you take money into account as well then Mulata and CdC end in a draw.
Enjoyed a glass of Ron Mulata Añejo 3y at La Bodequita del Medio in Havana. Nice label design, but rather mediocre bottle design. Color is light amber indicating very little added sugars. Alcohol and wood are strong to the nose and palate. A lot of burn at the end, so mix it up for your own sake.
Grassy, floral and fruity. I bought this tum on holidays for 8 euro. Excellent value for the money because it turns to be an excellent mixer.
This rum is of course very similar to Havana Club 3 Años, but tastes less aromatic and more sweet. In my opinion not worth the lower price, although it has little alcoholic burn.
Floral and grassy notes with sweetness of sugar cane juice and bubble gum. Light ethanol burn but with fruitiness of over ripen banana.
Light bodied rum, dry, charred wood with cocoa powder. Acidity of Sir cherry and musky wet cupboard.
Short finishing with acidity of stone fruits such as unripe cherry.
It is one of the best rums in this range .. great price/value relation..excellent choice for mixing and cocktails
I bought this rum because the low price of 8.80 euro was ok. The color is light yellow due to only 3 years of aging. The smell is good and better than the taste itself. I would use it for mixing when i was you. I love pure rum so this one is not my goal.
Must have a real cuban rum in my little collection, so why not start with thise one :)
